Fun and Games
Lot's of entertaining stuff for the list addicted among us at About Last Night recently.
Terry Teachout reviews the AFI's list of the top 100 American Films, and cops to the 30 he has not gotten around to. There were actually none that I hadn't seen at least a portion of, but I will admit to 4 that I can't remember having ever seen in their entirety.
ON THE WATERFRONT (1954)
THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES (1946)
ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT (1930)
MODERN TIMES (1936)
Our Girl then shares her list of the first five movie quotes that pop into your head? Must be from different movies. Here's mine.
"Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in." (Godfather 3)
"Hitler... there was a painter! He could paint an entire apartment in ONE afternoon! TWO coats!" (The Producers)
"I want you to hold it between your knees." (Five Easy Pieces)
"Plastics." (The Graduate)
"I wanted a mission, and for my sins, they gave me one." (Apocalypse Now)
Lastly, Terry shares, Ten Things I've Done That You Probably Haven't. Also a fun game, but it would take me longer than I have to come up with them, and several might be things I'd rather not fess up to.
